Phenolic Ring Tweeter Replacement for AR-4X CTS Marantz and More 8 Ohm
Phenolic Ring Tweeter Replacement for AR-4X CTS Marantz and More 8 Ohm is rated 4.8684 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Direct replacement for Altec Lansing 887a "Capri"Recently picked up some Altec Lansing 887a "Capri" speakers on Craigslist. Came with a Pioneer stereo, only the tweeters didn't work. Ordered these as replacements and they were a direct fit.One note--one of the tweeters was DOA, but PE immediately replaced it, and told me to keep the DOA one.Once installed, I couldn't believe how great these mini bookshelf speakers sounded. I'm very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound Is excellentI got a pair of these for a pair of JBL L88. They sound excellent, and imaging is great. The metal flange around the outside is slightly thinner than I would have liked, but overall the build quality is great.

I want to install these into a pair of AR6 speakers. The cutout is 62mm or 2 1/2" and the rebated OD slot is 93mm or 3 " and 10/16 . Will these fit?

Asked by: Marko99
This tweeter has an overall faceplate diameter of 4-1/4" and requires a cutout diameter of about 3-3/16". It sounds like the enclosure will require some modifications in order to fit properly.

If I am running a Magnavox tube amp at 6 ohms, which way should I go...4 ohm or 8 ohm. I have conflicting answers on the home front here.

Asked by: Anonymous
If your amp can only handle a 6 ohm load you do not want to go lower. I would recommend 8 ohm.
